We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care, and by whom, is a big decision! It all starts with your initial, complimentary consultation. Your first visit is very important in your diagnosis and treatment planning. During your first visit, you will have an opportunity to meet the team, learn more about orthodontics, receive your complimentary and complete initial exam and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. The doctor will take a panoramic x-ray, do an oral examination, discuss your dental and medical health history, explain your orthodontic options, and answer all of your questions.
After the initial consultation, we will then schedule your records appointment at which time the doctor will take photographs of your face and bite, take additional x-rays and take molds of you teeth. These are the diagnostic records necessary to create a customized treatment plan for your particular bite problems. This typically takes about an hour. Our team will be available to make you feel as comfortable as possible and answer any new questions you may have. At the following appointment, treatment is initiated.
Visiting us every 3 to six weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. We will work with you to make your appointments as convenient as possible.
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every 4-6 months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate and discus with your family dentist the best options and timing of delivery.
